Nicki Minaj’s Bangkok Concert Postponed

 

Nicki Minaj’s upcoming show in Bangkok, Thailand has been postponed due to unspecified “complications”.


The Anaconda rapper was due to perform in the Thai capital’s SCG Stadium on 4 April, but the date has now been pulled by promoters at the Godzillionaire Group.

A statement posted on the firm’s Facebook page blamed the cancellation of the date on “unforeseen internal complications” and promised that bosses are in negotiations with Nicki’s management team to reschedule the concert for later this year.

 

The 36-year-old musician’s current Nicki Wrld Tour has been a troubled one as the Thai show is the fourth gig that hasn’t gone ahead as planned.

Performances in Bratislava, Slovakia, and Bordeaux, France were canceled at the last minute due to technical issues, as she explained in a statement: “These two cities that had technical issues were cities that I had never been (to) before and we tried to add them but they just didn’t have the power in the building to facilitate my show. And they didn’t tell us that until three hours before the show… We did soundcheck, they said it was fine.”

The hip-hop superstar also had to disappoint fans in Dublin, Ireland, after some of her equipment trucks failed to arrive due to adverse weather conditions in the Irish Sea.

She did however, perform an emotional concert at the Manchester Arena in England on Monday, as she paid tribute to the 22 victims of the terror attack on her friend Ariana Grande’s concert at the same venue almost two years ago. Weather and technical problems permitting, her tour will continue in Frankfurt, Germany on Friday.

Music fans in Bangkok are finding the 4 April to be an unlucky date, as in addition to Nicki’s postponement, British synth-pop legends the Pet Shop Boys also pulled out of a concert on that day.
